Back at The Palestra, and It Feels So Good

Author: Stephanie Yee, C’08

The Penn Men’s Basketball season opener was last Friday night at The Palestra. After a rough first half, the Quakers pulled through to beat UMBC 80-75. Here is a photo recap of the evening.

Fast forward 40 minutes of game time (I was too nervous during the game to take photos)…

Penn students celebrate the big win by showering the Quaker with red and blue streamers.

See you on Saturday, November 17 at 4 PM at The Palestra for The Battle of 33rd Street (aka Penn vs. Drexel).
